Great for Sunday Brunch if
Great for Sunday Brunch if you're in the mood to party and get wild on a Sunday. This place has everything from a DJ spinning the hottest club beats on a Sunday afternoon, to a drag show, to the waitstaff walking around with bottles of champagne topping you off when when your glass if half full. Great for large groups. Get ready to party once you step foot into Intermezzo.

Excellent service from beginning
Excellent service from beginning to end. Dined on a Groupon offer. Food was very tasty. Portions were smaller than usual which may have been due to the Groupon special. All entrees were still enough to share. I must repeat that the service was outstanding.

Overall,our experience at Intermezzo was great. The service was excellent. The wait staff were very attentive and polite. We were not treated any differently for using a Groupon. The wine was good, the food portion size was also very good and came very quickly. We really enjoyed ourselves. I would definitely recommend Intermezzo.

As a vegan, I try to only go to vegan/vegetarian resturants but I was glad to see there were tons of options to choose from. I will totally be back to try more from the menu!

Favorite Brunch Place
Fast and efficient service, delicious menu choices and endless mimosas make for a perfect brunch venue. Intermezzo is always a destination whenever we have friends visit us. Always a treat.

I celebrated my 25th Birthday
I celebrated my 25th Birthday Party here last weekend, and just as I suspected from my past experience here two years ago, it was SO MUCH FUN! Brunch on Saturdays or Sundays is more like a huge party for everyone there. Loud music, drag hostess, bottomless drinks for $20 pp, dance contest for the Birthday people, dancing on tables, shirtless men, etc. For a special occasion I definitely recommend! I have been during the week as well just for dinner and it is much quitter and a good spot to grab a bite to eat and have a glass of wine.

I went with a friend who was born in Italy, so I had some trepidation. She was very complimentary about the food, saying how rare it is to find pasta cooked al dente. Intermezzo is an appealing place with above average food, and a terrific prix fixe menu. The experience is enhanced by the friendly and warm service. I wish I had a replica in my neighborhood.

Valon was a terrific server and he helped make a dinner out with old friends a really memorable affair!! The food was AMAZING!! Everything from Pear and Arugula Salad to Branzino, Crab Ravioli, and Truffle Risotto were INCREDIBLE! Thanks, Intermezzo for a wonderful evening out!!

Date anniversary dinner
Made a reservation and brought my partner for our anniversary celebration date and it turned out great. Our waiter, Sammy was very nice and suggested us a great wine bottle to accompany our dinner. Appetizers, entree and dessert were all great. In all, my partner and I are very happy to have tried dinner at Intermezzo. Our experience will be very memorable.

Intermezzo & Miguel are GREAT!!
Thanks to Intermezzo and Miguel, our server, for a fantastic eveing out. Intermezzo is probably our favorite restuarant in Chelsea. We always take our friends and family from out of town there! This eveing, though, we celebrated my partner's birthday. It's not pretentious, it has just a great vibe and the food and the service are OUTSTANDING!!
Thanks again to the crew at Intermezzo for once again out-doing yourselves. From the front to the back you all were great!!
P.S. The white crab fettucchini special was perfect for a warm day that ended with a cool evening. It was Miguel who really sold me on it!! My partner's seafood risotto was off the hook, too! Thanks!

Definitely Going Back!
First and foremost the evoo they served with the bread was amazing. Had to contain myself not to ask for more bread. The calamari was very light which was perfect since I wanted to leave room for dessert. The Salmon was cooked well but the star of my entree was the accompanying salad. Crisp and light with some sort of house dressing. My companion had the pork loin and the gravy was just right. Had the tiramisu for dessert. It was good as well. The presentation was beautiful. The meal was amazing. Their service was good, they aren't overly attentive, which is great.

Delivered on all aspects
We chose Intermezzo based on Open Table reviews and wanting a restaurant in the Chelsea area. It did not disappoint and, in fact, exceeded our expectations. Intermezzo is a small restaurant (probably less than 80 seats inside and then a small patio seating outside). We were seated in the back section away from the door. Quaint yet still the energy from the bar. We were taken care of by Gasper, who appeared to also be the manager. Excellent service with great recommendations throughout the meal. Appetizers included 99 cent fresh oysters. Salad was fresh. Pasta was excellent. Wine suggested by Gasper was perfect. All was very good. Go enjoy!

Couldn't be happier!
We went to Intermezzo on a Friday night for a friend's birthday party and had a blast. First off, it's hard to find a restaurant in the city for a large group without having to do a fixed price menu but not at Intermezzo. We were a group of 10 and were able to order from the regular menu. The service was great! And our server Sam was the cutest italian man...we were all a little obsessed. He was polite and everyone at the restaurant was very accommodating. To top it all off, the food was delicious. We couldn't have been happier! Will def be going back. We love you Sam!!

I hosted a brunch for my friend who had just come home from the military. The hostess was very accomodating even though half of our party had not arrived on time or did not show up at all. There was a DJ, a fog machine, and for $20 the champange was flowing like a waterfall. The service was amazing and my glass was never empty. The food was tasty and the DJ was playing some great music. There was even a drag show that bought brunch to an end. We all had soo much fun and are sure to go back!!

Seated right away, attentive service (though they came over a little TOO frequently) and GREAT food.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again, these guys and gals at Intermezzo have offered up blue ribbon food, service that is unrivaled, and made a special occasion even more special!
Try the Pera salad with fresh arugula, gorgonzola, pears, and walnuts- IT'S FANTASTIC!! My partner, Xavier, had the Octopus (pulpo) special. Again... AMAZING!! I've never had octopus that was fork-tender. I had risotto which was cooked to perfection!
Thanks again to ALL the staff (especially our server, Valon) for out-doing yourselves once again! See you soon!!

Was a great time - food was good and service was on point at cheap cheap prices. Two complaints: the music towards the back was horribly loud to the point we could barely have a conversation and the second thing a waiter grabbed a female friend's behind. Not really a classy moment.

Octopus appetizer excellent.
Octopus appetizer excellent. The pan-seared bronzino was served with just risotto was tasty but lacked presentation- serving a vegetable as well would have added color and improved the entree.

Great drag show along with food and people. You will make friends no matter what. Due in the evening it's very mellow total opposite of brunch. Great food and service no matter time of day. Love the pre- made sangria

We go there often and always take our friends and family from out of town, as we live in in the neighborhood. One of us always orders one of the specials. They never fail to disappoint! I had the lobster special on this occasion, but I've never had a bad meal off the regular menu! Quite the contrary! Everything is amazing. Generally, the service is outstanding, too! Valon is my favorite!! If your in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, make a trip to Intermezzo! If your not in Chelsea, make a special trip, as it's only 2 blocks off the C & E trains at 23rd St.! Try any of the dishes served with their homemade pasta or risotto! After dinner, try the tiramisu and/or the creme brulee. And don't forget the wine and vodkatinis!

nice neighborhood longtime spot
very good food and one of the most reasonably priced wine lists in NYC - $28 for a bottle of Gavi and more.

I am a regular because Intermezzo never disappoints! Great food and great service!

Great Food and good service
Ordered the polenta and eggplant to start which were both very good. Polenta was not what I was expecting but was pleasantly surprised. Both of our entrees were very good. Service was very friendly.
